Sunny fun on the slopes with a refreshment stop in Mayhrofen-Hippach

More Information

The sun's rays are infused with vitamin D, which is essential to human existence! When human skin is exposed to sunlight, the body releases so-called endorphins, or in other words, happy hormones. So let's get out into the sun! Here a a few suggestions for sun terraces to visit in and around Mayrhofen:

Sunny scenic terrace at Gasthaus Steinerkogl, Brandberg

Steinerkogl sits enthroned high above Mayrhofen, almost like a palace. If you are planning to walk there from Mayrhofen, you should anticipate it taking around 2 hours. The walk from the village of Brandberg, however, only takes 30 minutes. Your efforts will be amply rewarded with magnificent views from Gasthaus Steinerkogl over Mayrhofen, Finkenberg, Mounts Penken and Ahorn. The sun shines all day long here, where you can enjoy great food and perfect views while sunbathing!

The sun is one of the main attractions at Almhof Roswitha at Hochschwendberg, even though the surrounding alpine panorama also promises unparalleled enjoyment. As you lean back to savour the sun's rays, you will blink every so often and see the mountains in their unadulterated beauty. It feels like a dream, but it is in fact reality. Enjoying the tranquility of nature with a great cup of coffee and a slice of homemade cake is veritable balm for the soul!

Panorahma Restaurant on Mount Penken

There's something special about springtime skiing, when Early Bird Skiing is particularly popular. Being the first out to carve virgin lines down the freshly groomed slopes is a truly magnificent experience. The Knorren lift whisks you back up to the top and the Panorahma Restaurant, where sun loungers with snug sheepskin inlays, panoramic views of the Zillertal Alps and plenty of peace and quiet to recharge flagging energy levels await. That's what springtime skiing is all about!

Grillhofalm, Penken Park

Unparalleled views of the aerial antics performed by the pros at Penken Park are offered from the Grillhofalm sun terrace. You're right in the thick of all the action here, when the best of the best throw down the gauntlet. Choose from beer trestles, lounge furniture or even Fatboy loungers, which - thanks to their special filling - adapt around your body and are comfortably warm, even at low temperatures. Sunbathing pleasures are additionally sweetened by a lively portion of party music!
